So, Betty White´s crew is not going to be pranking kids anymore as NBC cancelled Betty White´s Off Their Rockers just days after season two finale aired, by opting not to pick up the option of the show for one more run, especially now that the timeslot is thought to be occupied by Wall of Fame, NBC´s newest game show.
We cannot say we are surprised about this, since the show premiered to a whooping 12 million viewers, but season two averaged only a bit over 5 million.
“Betty White’s Off Their Rockers” is adapted from the hit Belgium series “Benidorm Bastards.” The international version of the series has been sold to more than 20 countries and has received many awards worldwide. “Benidorm Bastards” won the 2011 International Emmy Award for Best Comedy Series, and swept the Rose d’Or Awards, winning the Best Comedy Award as well as the Golden Rose for Best Program of the entire competition. In addition, the show won Best Comedy Format at the 2010 FRAPA Format Awards.
So, we will still enjoy the 91 years old star on her sitcom at TVLand, Hot in Cleveland, but not anymore in this prank show.
